I am going to do some cupcakes for my friends son who will be turning 4! I need some interesting ideas so I know that this is the place to ask. He is the typical little boy and likes cars, little einstiens, bugs, etc...
My plan is to top them with buttercream but I want to make it interesting. ANY ideas would be great!!!

I've seen baseballs and basketballs - easy to do in BC.

Or you can do grass with bugs (even candy bugs or gummi worms to make it easy)

as mom to 4 sons, i vote for bugs on grass. 4 is a bit young for sports.....

Though I'm a girl my mom did me a caterpillar cake when I was little... So, here's what you do.

You take one of those circular cake pans with the hole in the middle, right? You bake a cake in it, then cut the cake in half down the middle. Alight the lower part of one cut to the top part of another to make a wavy design. Decorate and have fun creating it into a caterpillar!

For the cupcakes, you could do all sorts. Spiders, beetles, ladybugs even. Bumblebees, etc.
